One of my favorite things to do in the summer is to take a family road trip to new destinations (we’ve done it all from Chicago to New Orleans to Asheville to Greenville). I will never forget our trip from Salt Lake City, Utah, to Bozeman, Montana, and all of the fascinating stops along the way. For this trip, I partnered with Chevrolet and test drove their Camaro and here are just a few places that you must stop along the way.
